A Poem For Debra And The Podcast People Keeping Me Sane

by William Skink

On this special Memorial Day Monday I’m putting on my “William Skink” persona to share a poem for Adam’s mother-in-law, Debra. Debra Gets Red Pilled is a FANTASTIC podcast, and I was delighted to hear Adam read a poem from the book I sent them.

In addition to celebrating Debra, I’d also like to give a shout out to the podcast people keeping me sane, so THANK YOU Adam, Binkley, Monica Perez, Greg Carlwood, Sam Tripoli, the Grimerica guys, Ryan Cristian, Jason Bermas, Whitney Webb, Charlie Robinson, the Convo Couch and the Slow News Day crew.

some minds stuck in concrete
some minds harmed by Trump
some minds rise for conceited prizes
some minds sink in slump

but oh the mind of Debra!
behold!  it still absorbs!
how did age and American cages
not slam shut her door?

all the podcast padres
and madres who evolved
can see the Saint in Debra
and it gives them steel resolve

so THANK YOU dearest Debra
you're climbing quite a hill
thank you for bravely taking
Adam's reddest pill
